Today’s card is the Page of Cups, also known as Chalices. As with any court card, this can represent an actual person entering your life at this time. This card, while traditionally entitled the Page, appears in some modern decks as a Princess. Therefore, this person can be male or female but will be a poetic, mystical, emotionally open young person, one who is still a bit naive and idealistic and who tends to have a vivid imagination or is perhaps living in a ‘fantasy land’. This energy is exquisitely refined and well-tuned. This person may not yet have had to experience a sense of being ‘grounded’. If so, the truth of practicality and/or responsibility may have not yet entirely set in; he or she is easily tossed about by external forces and events that they cannot control. They are acting strictly from an emotional space without considering the logic or repercussions of their actions. This person must work to achieve a stronger will and a more calculating mind, to balance and protect all that wonderful sensitivity and to keep from getting hurt or taken advantage of.
As we saw in the Shapeshifter deck, the Pages (Seekers) were there to offer advice or be of service to others. If a Seeker comes into your sphere, let them help you and consider their advice carefully. They have been sent by the Divine to offer help. If you do not recognize this figure as someone around you then you are being advised to study the best ways you can address this tendency in your behavior. This card is asking you to make yourself fully available, mentally as well as emotionally, for whatever is needed. Strive to discern what would give more pleasure, comfort and emotional security to all; then, provide it. Put aside any emotion you may have about what is happening; it has little or nothing to do with you personally. The best you can do is to offer support and listen closely to others. Make sure you understand what is needed and serve the situation with loyalty. Look at individuals around you as the embodiment of the Divine and try to fulfill each one’s needs. Be unconcerned with the outcome. Later you will understand why you were needed in this position.
Today, may you find that you are serving all those around you to the highest good. This will serve you in ways you cannot imagine in your wildest fantasies!
